An RN or LVN who violates the state laws and issuances from the Texas Board of Nursing (BON) should seek proper help from a nurse attorney. Doing so could make or break their cases. As a matter of fact, the license can even be suspended or revoked if not defended properly.
One such incident happened to a RN in Temple. During the time of the incident she was currently employed as RN in a medical facility in Temple, Texas.
On or about June 16, 2015, until January 7, 2015, the RN was noncompliant with the Agreed Order WARNING WITH STIPULATIONS issued to her on June 16, 2015, by the Texas Board of Nursing. Noncompliance is the result of the RN’s failure to not be employed by a home health agency and multiple employers are prohibited.
Because of this, the RN was summoned by the Texas Board of Nursing to defend her side.
As a defense to her case, the RN states she notified her primary place of employment about the stipulations placed on her license. She worked for the home health agency in question on PRN basis. When she did see the owner they talked about the patient’s care and she didn’t think about telling her about the order since it was a prn job. When the home health agency brought this to her attention, they both mutually agreed to stop the assignment.
Because of the incident, the RN was disciplined and suspended by the Board of Nursing.
The Texas Board of Nursing (BON) is the government agency that has jurisdiction to hear and decide administrative cases involving RN and LVN license. The Board has the power to suspend and/or revoke the nurse license. It is also the agency that is responsible for overseeing the practice of professional nursing all over the State of Texas.
The Texas Board of Nursing decided to revoke her license as a result of her actions. It’s because she failed to hire a good nurse attorney for the case, which is why her defense was not matched with the evidence that the Board possesses.
A good nurse attorney is always the best line of defense for these cases. This is the reason why Nurse Attorney Yong J. An is dedicated to helping those nurses in need to settle their cases.
